Andrew grew up in southern Illinois in a town just outside of St. Louis called Edwardsville. He spent most his young life playing baseball and soccer. Andrew was able to achieve his goal and played soccer in college and then took it to the professional level. Andrew really enjoys the outdoors and one of his favorite memories is living in Colorado and working on the top of a mountain. Some of his hobbies include weight lifting and crocheting. Andrew’s favorite quote is “There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going”. He tries to live his life by this and uses it to help influence our students in their journeys through life.
